Global Payments Marks Growth

Global Payments Marks Growth

As both iGaming and sports betting become more widely accessible, Global Payments Gaming Solutions has reported 2019 growth exceeding 50 percent within the U.S. iGaming market, the company announced in January.

Serving more than 3 million registered players and adding more than 30,000 monthly, Global Payments provision of credential-free enrollment reduces friction and enables expanded online play.

Global Payments’ VIP Mobility solution enables frictionless responsible gaming and an enhanced user experience for players, and is currently being piloted in a host of casinos across the United States.

For land-based casinos, Global Payments supports a significant number of operations, having signed key deals to deploy self-service options that enhance operator profitability and make the cage more efficient. Additionally, the company continues to invest in and deliver new functionality like dynamic currency conversion, and new payment forms, such as cash advance with American Express.

This year, Global Payments added new benefits to its compliance-management solution, VIP Shield, an open API solution that is compatible with any gaming system. The solution now provides users with enhanced Title 31 and IRS reporting, and better visibility between the cage, surveillance and finance departments.

To support its momentum, Global Payments added key personnel to its executive team in 2019, including Michael Minor as head of sales, and Gregory Boardman as head of product. Both executives bring unique industry experience to the organization: Minor previously served as head of North American system sales for IGT, and Boardman is a veteran leader in payments and commerce.

Company President Christopher Justice was named to board positions with the iDevelopment and Economic Association (iDEA) and the American Gaming Association (AGA), where he sits on task forces focusing on payments modernization and sports betting.
